SHARE Selects Principal Solutions Advisor, Ezriel Gross, as Distinguished Speaker
As one of the oldest computer user groups in the world, SHARE supports the continued development of the enterprise technology ecosystem. Over the years, Rocketeers have partnered with them to participate in events and lead speaking sessions, sharing the goal of educating users on legacy technology. SHARE members have also been critical in driving innovation in the IBM Z community, a cause that is very important to us at Rocket.
Ezriel Gross, a Rocket Principal Solutions Advisor, has a particularly strong connection to the SHARE community. He has led many sessions about CICS, IBM’s Customer Information Control System Transaction Server for z/OS. As a member of the Application Architecture Development and Integration Program (AADI) group, his sessions have won Best Session and The Best of the Best Session award at SHARE multiple times. These recognitions are based on user participation and votes, given to sessions with the highest ratings.
For his outstanding speaking accomplishments, Ezriel was recently named as a SHARE Distinguished Speaker. This accolade recognizes SHARE members who have consistently delivered engaging and educational content to the SHARE community. This designation is given to those who have presented at multiple SHARE events, receive high marks for their presentations, and regularly receive a Best Session Award. Ezriel has won Best of the Best Session four times for various presentations:
- Intro to IPCS for CICS People
- CICS Internals: An Introduction
- CICSPlex SM – A Minimalist Approach
- CICS Web Services as a Provider and Requestor
These presentations, and his overall participation in SHARE, have led him to this important accomplishment, which was presented virtually at the SHARE Virtual General Session on August 4. Congratulations to Ezriel on this accomplishment.
SHARE and Rocket Software share the common goal of making IBM Z accessible, and to innovate on this legendary system. We are proud of all of our community leaders and Rocketeers who strive to educate and inspire others to develop creative solutions for real-world problems with IBM Z. We’re also proud of the real difference that Rocketeers like Ezriel are making in the IBM and legacy technology communities.
